Sex & Soul

CD (Item 838288) Mercury/Playback, 1973 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

Sex, soul, and lots more too – a sublime solo set from the great Roy C Hammond – recorded after his initial work with The Honeydrippers! The approach here is much more deep soul than his work with that group – very much in the best sort of Fame or Hi Records vibe – with a slow-burning sound that's a nice evolution past the earliest modes of southern soul, and which is perfectly suited to the sophistication of Roy's vocals! The set was the first in Hammond's solo run for Mercury Records – almost ignored at the time, but later the stuff of legend – thanks to writers like Peter Guaralnick, and others who've finally given Roy his due. The arrangements and instrumentation are wonderful – much more indie soul than you'd expect – on a par with the best early 70s material on Stax/Volt – and titles include "I Found A Man In My Bed", "Back Into My Arms", "Open Letter To The President", "Don't Blame The Man" and "I'll Never Leave You Lonely".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

De-Lite/Mercury, 1978. Used
Way more than "top hits" from Kool & The Gang – as the classic package focuses on material from their funkiest years – that great early De-Lite period of the early and mid 70s! There's a lot more funk here than hits – and the titles show Kool & The Gang evolving ... CD
Casablanca/Mercury, 1975. Used
An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded! The band's rawer style has been firmed up and economized – but a lot of the best elements are still in place, including a strange approach to vocals that has male and female voices interacting ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1975. Used
Definitely something nice from the great Roy C – one of the overlooked soul singer's great 70s albums for Mercury – all of which are ripe for rediscovery by a younger generation! This one's slightly different than the rest, in that the album was recorded at the Dynamic Studios in ... CD
Mercury/Fever Dream, 1973. Used
A fantastic early 70s set from Don Covay – probably best known for his 60s hits on Atlantic Records, but really winning us all over again with this smoking set for Mercury! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but isn't just southern soul – as a wealth of 70s influences filter into ... CD
Mercury, 1975. Used
A great mid period sleeper from Barry White – and an album that's not as hit-heavy as his other work from the time, but still equally nice! The album's got a mellower groove than some of Barry's albums of the time – a laidback approach that's going more for an overall sound, and which ... CD
Mercury, 1979. Used
One of the last truly great albums that Barry White ever cut – with his solid sexy soul sound firmly in place, and a solid groove running through most of the tracks on the album. Barry's voice is still in fantastic shape, too – and it's a real treat to hear him open up on some of the ... CD

DJ Rogers

Hope Songs Vol 1
Hope Song/Playback, 1982. Used
DJ Rogers returns to his roots, and cuts an album that's more in a straight gospel mode than his earlier gospel-influenced soul sets! Honestly, the results are so great, we like this one just as much as the best of his secular albums – and the record's got a cohesive feel that's totally ... CD
Mercury/P&C, 1978. Used
A killer soul set from Caroline Crawford – with production, arrangements, and songwriting by Hamilton Bohannon – soaring, beautiful, uniquely soulful sounds from the late 70s! Crawford's got a hell of a voice – equally well-suited to deeper soul ballads and uptempo groovers ... CD

Ohio Players

Contradiction
Mercury, 1976. Used
An overlooked bit of mid 70s funk from the Ohio Players – cut right at the height of their brilliant Mercury years! The album's got a smooth and slinky finish that has the band tightening up a lot from their Westbound years – going for a compressed spacey soul sound on some of the ... CD
